The Linked Learning Alliance’s president Christopher Cabaldon has announced plans to step down from his position later this year, and the organization’s board has launched a search for a successor.
The Linked Learning Alliance is a statewide coalition of education, industry and community organizations dedicated to improving high schools and preparing students for success in college and careers. Cabaldon has headed the Alliance since 2010.
“What began as a compelling idea in scattered pilots has now become a primary education and economic opportunity strategy for California,” Cabaldon said. “By redesigning state policies to support college and career readiness, investing more than $1 billion in Linked Learning approaches and rallying employers, colleges, policymakers, school leaders, teachers, students and the public to the cause, we’ve created a powerfully transformative, sustainable movement. Over the past decade, the Linked Learning Alliance has evolved from an informal coalition to an official organization with capacity for improving equity and expanding high quality pathways that prepare all students for success in college and career.”
Cabaldon was the founding president of the Alliance. He was formerly vice chancellor of the California Community Colleges, president of EdVoice and higher education committee director for the California State Assembly. Cabaldon helped develop a strategic plan to significantly increase the number of students who attain a career ready post-secondary certificate or degree.
Cabaldon has agreed to continue as president through the search process, which is expected to conclude this summer. For information, visit linkedlearning.org.
